    I’m not quite sure what I should be looking for to fix this RSS issue. I read through the suggestions on w3.org can’t quite figure out what is wrong and/or what I can do in WP to fix what is happening…

    This page contains the following errors:

    error on line 509 at column 31: Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding !
    Bytes: 0x08 0x45 0x6D 0x6F
    Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

    Per w3.org’s validator, here is line 509:

    <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>Click here to view the embedded video.</p>

    The complete results: http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fgaryploski.com%2Ffeed

    Sorry

    This feed does not validate.
    line 512, column 179: XML parsing error: <unknown>:512:179: not well-formed (invalid token) [help]
    … nsibilities of a producer and director? Emotions that are normally felt …

    In addition, interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations.
    line 22, column 61: Image not in required format [help]

    Many thanks for suggestions/input.

    Can you replicate the problem using the default Twenty Twelve theme with all plugins deactivated?

    I have not tried that. Another piece I forgot to include is that the feed is working for any tool that already has the URL but I can’t add it to a new RSS tool.

    I’ll give your suggestion a try.

    With Twenty Twelve active and all plugins deactivated this was the result.

    This page contains the following errors:

    error on line 475 at column 25: Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding !
    Bytes: 0x08 0x45 0x6D 0x6F

    Can we see the site using the default Twenty Twelve theme with all plugins deactivated?

    Sure thing. I will make it available that way until 6:15 pm eastern.

    It is now activated with Twenty Twelve theme with all plugins deactivated.

    Noting the time, I can leave it a bit longer but please let me know as soon as you’ve had a look.

    Many thanks, esmi.

    What happens if you set post 3858 (“Facebook Pages Admin Roles & Scheduling Posts, Engagio, Actor turned Director…”) back to draft status?

    Hmm. With that page set to Draft…

    This page contains the following errors:

    I think you edited the wrong Post. It’s the one at http://garyploski.com/facebook-pages-admin-roles-scheduling-posts-engagio-actor-turned-director-breakfast-smoothie-time-with-gp

    Sorry – should have given you the exact url earlier.

    I think you hit the nail on the head.

    http://garyploski.com/feed looks much better.

    Did you copy content in from somewhere else when you created that problem Post? I think it’s an issue with the actual text content of the Post that’s breaking the feed.

    Many thanks!

    Now the curious question is, what is up with that post.

    It uses the exact same formatting as the others in that series. The only obvious difference I see is the length of the title.

    Fortunately, it’s something I can dig into later on thanks to your help. =)

    I’ll post an update later tonight and mark this as resolved then.

    I’d be really interested to see what the issue is. The feed validator isn’t much help.
